republican leader john boehner. mr. boehner, if the republicans do take the house you in all probability will be the new speaker. the president is already trying to make you the face of the republican party. he mentioned you by name eight times the other day in a speech in your home state. here's what he said. >> there were no new policies from mr. boehner. there were no new ideas. there was just the same philosophy that we had already tried during the decades that they were in power. the same philosophy that led to this mess in the first place. cut more taxes for millionaires. cut more rules for corporations. >> schieffer: what about that? >> well, listen, you know, the president says no new ideas. we've offer him new ideas for the last 20 months. and speaking of new, i wonder what's new about more stimulus spending, more taxes and more uncertainty for american small businesses. that's what the president is proposing. what's new about that? if the president wants to get serious and wants to do something new why don't we cut spending and get rid of this notion that we can continue to spe

to mr. boehner. mr. boehner. mr. boehner. there were no new policies from mr. boehner. boehner. the republicans in congress, i bet this just seems like common sense. but not to mr. boehner. >> president obama finds a foil in his speech in cleveland, the man who would be speaker if the republicans take the house in november. we'll talk about that and more with george will, arianna huffington, kate zernike, and abc senior congressional correspondent, jonathan karl. thank you all. welcome. let's take john boehner. since we just heard his name a lot. he's just made some news by saying that he seems to -- if he would have to, make a compromise on the middle class tax cuts and vote for just extending them. is that a goer, do you think? is that a qualifier? >> i think he means what he says, some tax cuts are better than none. he wants to fight for all of them. seven times he mentioned john boehner. the president of the united states has met the enemy of hope, freedom, and prosperity in the united states and he's from ohio. he has a 78-seat majority in the house of representatives and
americans, those tax cuts in the bush era? >> there's no one who believes mr. boehner -- they called the last set of tax cuts temporary. they're going to continue. i think we have to assume they're going to keep pushing this -- but let me make one point clear. what we're proposing is a tax cut for 100% of americans up to $250,000 of their income. so if you make under $250,000, you get a tax cut on all your income. if you make more than, that you get it up to $250,000. so if you're a millionaire, you'll get what everybody else gets up to $250,000. not the $100,000 a year that mr. boehner wants to give. david, we just can't afford it. and really what we ought to do is, as the president said, we agree on the middle-class tax cuts. let's not hold them hostage while we debate whether we're going to give this very small number of people at the top a tax cut that we can't afford. >> whether boehner's comments that he would support the extension of the middle-class tax cuts will open the door for some kind of compromise in the next few weeks now that they're back from break. >> it was intere
mr. boehner was here in cleveland, he attacked us. there were no new policies from mr. boehner. >> the president takes on the top republican in the house. >>> as that wildfire burns around boulder, colorado, we meet a family that's lost their home and now have to start over. >>> and, dollar value. >> i get a little bit of everything here. that's a spoon off the "lusitania." patriots super bowl ring. >> we'll spend some time with the world's most famous pawn brokers on this thursday, september 9th. >> from abc news, this is "world news now." >> you probably wouldn't think of this, but pawn shops right now are a reflection of the economy. >> people need the cash. i can't believe people are pawning their super bowl ring, that's crazy. >> they're saying a lot of that is reflected in the fact that they have a ton of tools used for repairing homes. because so many people were flipping homes, now they're not doing home repairs. it is interesting to see that story and meet that family you may recognize from the history channel. >> show is pretty popular too.
policies from mr. boehner. there were no new ideas. there was just the same philosophy that we had already tried during the decade that they were in power. the same philosophy that led to this mess in the first place. cut more taxeses a better country for our children and grandchildren, their argument is that we should let insurance companies go back to denying care for folks who are sick or let credit card companies go back to raising rates without any reason. instead of setting our sights higher, they're asking us to settle for a status quo of stagnant growth and eroding competitiveness and a shrinking middle class. cleveland, that is not the america i know. that is not the america we believe in. a lot has changed since i came here in those final days of the last election. but what hasn't changed is the choice facing this country. it's still fear versus hope. the past versus the future. it's still a choice between sliding backward and moving forward. that's what this election is about. that's the choice that you will face in november. now, we have a different vision for the future. see,
have back with us tonight. >> thanks for having me, ed. >> you bet. what do you think of mr. boehner's opening of the door about tax cuts? that he would actually vote with democrats on this. >> well, i think these are just words. i learned a long time ago, not to pay a whole lot ofsa attenti to what people say. watch what they do. and that is the real test here. i think that what we've heard from mr. boehner for a long, long time now is that they've got a plan for america. i call it the three rs, they want to repeat, they want to reject, and they want to repeal. they want to repeal those laws that we've already put into place to close these loopholes so we can create jobs here in america. they want to reject president obama's middle-class tax cuts. and they want to repeat the blowing up of deficit which is what we're to do if entries or extend president bush's tax cuts. $700 billion deficit increase. that's not what the american people want. >> yeah. >> and so i think we not going to let mr. boehner hide behind his words. we're going to sign on his actions. >> okay. well, the preside
to insist on the tax breaks. that's part of mr. boehner's two-step plan to create jobs unveiled today. the gallup poll gave the republicans an unprecedented ten-point edge and reverted back to be zero. the party is dead even in a week. the president gave another major speech depicting the stark political and policy choice for november. in cleveland, the president offered tax breaks for businesses but offered no compromise on allowing bush tax cuts to expire for the wealthiest americans. >> with all of the republicans' talk about wanting to shrink the deficit, they would have us borrow $700 billion over the next ten years to give a tax cut of about $100,000 each to folks who are already millionaires. so, let me be clear to mr. boehner and everybody else -- we should not hold middle class tax cuts hostage any listeninger. we are ready this week if they want, to give tax cuts to every american making $250,000 or less. that's 98% -- 97% of americans. >> the president correctly noted that the republicans are blocking ideas that they would normally support, including a small business packag
this but mr. boehner is a popular guy in ohio and thin aggregate. is there a risk of taking a well regarded son even if he is not seen as true blue of democrats and calling them out by name, isn't that risky? >> i think it is a little bit. and it is some what unprecedented. look, obama has to have a foil. he is trying to draw contrast here. trying to make frame the election as a choice between two competing visions. the democratic vision and the republican vision. he is offering his vision and he has to pair it against something and embody that some where and he has chosen speaker boehner to do it. speaker boehner has said a couple of things. >> you are calling him speaker boehner. >> i'm sorry, minority leader boehner. said a couple of things that obama is turning back on him and trying to use as ammunition to turn the tide of the election. >> neil: interesting to me is mr. boehner has hinted of wheeling and dealing moves. something that he would consider. whether he could get other republicans in line is any one's guess but i suspect they would. they are willing to consider a two year ext
the rules themselves. they said, we don't need to buy access to mr. boehner. we already have that. we want him in power so we're in power. we don't want to go to the same policies and practices that drove our economy pinto a ditc that punished the middle class and led us to this catastrophe. we have on keep moving forward. >> let me ask you more specific question about this debate about tax cuts. you mentioned leader boehner for the republicans who is saying in an interview that in fact he would support the middle class tax cuts to the extension of which is what the president wants. he said on friday, don't hold those hostage. i'm asking if there is any room to compromise with republicans to extend even if it is for two years, as your formerly departed budget director called for, those on upper income americans, those on tax cuts from the bush rae? >> if you read carefully what our budget director said, he said he would prefer we didn't move forward on the upper income tax cuts because he doesn't believe they're stimulative and he doesn't believe we can afford it but he thought for politi
. >> mr. boehner and the republicans in congress said no to these projects. mr. boehner has so far said no to infrastructure. so let me be clear to mr. boehner and everybody else, we should not hold middle class tax cuts hostage any longer. when these same republicans including mr. boehner were in charge, the number of earmarks and pet projects went up, not down. >> is this a smart strategy for the president and his party? thank you. steve, first and then josh. is this smart to give a name to his pain? >> sure. i'm not sure there's that much that democrats and obama can do to salvage this election. if you look at one of their sort of fundamental missions for the next few months is really to fire up the democratic base. if you can increase the democratic turnout from where it is projected to be right now, there's a chance they could survive in these marginal districts where otherwise they lose. if you make this a fight between barack obama on one hand and john boehner on the other hand and what obama tried to do and republicans haven't done for the last two years, that message resonates
are still in this johnling match with john boehner. there were no new policies for mr. bain boehner andnd republicans in congested no. >> neil: any way to strike a deal or just strike out, this glad to have you on neil cavuto on fox. a president who seems over the top making a big else emphasis over a relatively little known name. an opposition leader hardly known in america. house minority leader john boehner the villain gift that keeps giving even as he keeps offering to stop the drama and strike a deal. mr. boehner says he is open to extending the middle class tax cuts even if it means junking doing the same for the wealthy. some call it a watershed moment. republican senatorial candidate marco rubio says that is all you need to know about which party wants to get something done? which party would that be? i'm not sure where you are do coming from. >> good afternoon. the party that is not in charge right now. >> neil: what do you make before we get into the florida issues and all what do you make of john boehner being singled out again and again. >> the president is looking for someone
no new policies for mr. boehner. there were no new ideas. there was just the same philosophy that we had already tried during the decades that they were in power. >> in his august 24 speech, boehner said the worst the economy gets the more the president defends the indefensible. president obama today defended his refusal to extend the tax cuts for families making more than $250,000 a year. >> this isn't to punish folks who are better off. god bless 'em. it's because we can't afford the $700 billion price tag. >> boehner today says the best way to restore confidence in the economy is to cut government spending. >> why don't we pass a bill this month at 2008 spending levels, you know, before the tarp, before the bail-out, before the stimulus and let's put some certainty in the economy. >> boehner also said that means extending all the bush administration tax cuts which a few democrats say they can live with, but only for a year or two. >> that can be part of the mix in the very short-term again. i don't think it's the best way to accelerate the economy. >> the white house says republicans
. but that is not what happened. there were no new policies from mr. boehner. there were no new ideas. there was just the same philosophy that we have already tried during the decade with a were in power. the same philosophy that led to this mess in the first place -- cut more taxes for millionaires and cut more rules for corporations. instead of coming together like past generations did to build a better country for our children and grandchildren, their argument is that we should let insurance companies go back to denying care for folks who are sick, or let credit card companies go back to raising rates without any reason. instead of setting our sights higher, they are asking us to settle for a status quo of stagnant growth, eroding competitiveness, and a shrinking middle class. cleveland, that is not the america i know. that is not the america we believe in. a lot has changed since i came here in those final days of the last election, but what has not changed is the choice facing this country. it is still fear versus hope. the past versus the future. it is still a choice between sliding backward an
and mentioned sort of a wrestling match here. did he mention congressman boehner? >> he sure did go after mr. boehner once again and for the first time in this round of the fight he called out the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. >> we could get that done this week. but we are still in this wrestling match with john boehner and mitch mcconnell about the last 2% to 3% where on average we would be giving them $100,000 for people making a million dollars or more. >> but republicans appear to be getting the upper hand in this debate, shep. a new ras musten poll showed that 51% of voters favor extending the bush tax cuts to everyone including the high income taxpayerers. 44% said no. >> shepard: a visual aid here. >> the fight is getting a bit graphic literally. check out the cartoon that senate democrats sent to reporters. it says republicans want to blocks tax cuts for the 98 people figures in the cartoon, 98% of middle class taxpayers and 2% of higher income taxpayers are represented by the two little figures in the top hat and tails, the little guy from the monopoly game. we'll see i
